Mad Science or School-to-Prison? Criminalizing Black Girls,Studies show that Black children do not commit more offenses in the classroom than whites and Latinos. Nevertheless,“in many American classrooms black children are treated like ticking time bomb savages.” Black girls are suspended from school more than any other ethnicity – except Black males.Stereotypes about dysfunctional violent black children ensure that the myth of white children’s relative innocence is preserved.”

High stakes test question: A female science student conducts an experiment with chemicals that explodes in a classroom, causes no damage and no injuries. Who gets to be the adventurous teenage genius mad scientist and who gets to be the criminal led away in handcuffs facing two felonies to juvenile hall? If you’re a white girl check Box A, if you’re an intellectually curious black girl with good grades check Box B. When 16 year-old Kiera Wilmot was arrested and expelled from Bartow high school in Florida for a science experiment gone awry it exemplified a long American-as-apple pie tradition of criminalizing black girls. In many American classrooms black children are treated like ticking time bomb savages, shoved into special education classes, disproportionately suspended and expelled then warehoused in opportunity schools, juvenile jails and adult prisons. Yet, while national discourse on the connection between school discipline and mass incarceration typically focuses on black males, black girls are suspended more than boys of every other ethnicity (except black males). At a Georgia elementary school in 2012 a six year-old African American girl was handcuffed by the police after throwing a tantrum in the principal’s office.i Handcuffing disruptive black elementary school students is not uncommon. It is perhaps the most extreme example of black children’s initiation into what has been characterized as the school-to-prison pipeline, or, more accurately, the cradle to grave pipeline. Stereotypes about dysfunctional violent black children ensure that the myth of white children’s relative innocence is preserved.

“Black students do not, in fact,‘offend’ at higher rates than their white and Latino counterparts.”

Nationwide, black children spend more time in the dean’s office, more time being opportunity transferred to other campuses and more time cycling in and out of juvenile detention facilities than children of other ethnicities. Conservatives love to attribute this to poverty, broken homes, and the kind of Bell Curve dysfunction that demonizes “welfare queens” who pop out too many babies. Yet there is no compelling evidence that socioeconomic differences play a decisive role in these disparities
YOUR CHILDREN ARE ABUSED BY LIBERALS LOOK AT ALL THE RALISTS TEACHER MOST WHITE FEMALES CHILD MOLESTERS BUT THEY ARE WJITE FEMALE IF THEY WERE MEN OR WORST BLACKMEN OMG LIBERALS

Brain dead fools like lily just don't comprehend anything more complicated than how much the price of her Vodka went up last week.

Can you imagine how the people on the ground in Benghazi felt when they saw no support whatsoever after so many hours had gone by.

An F-16 which has a maximum speed of over Mach 2, could have been dispatched from Aviano, Italy and at maximum speed, could have been there pronto. Aviano Air Base is about 1,000 miles from Bengazi. At 1,500 MPH that would take about and hour to get off the ground and be there.

Drones were flying over Benghazi at the time, but the dastardly Obama/Clinton and scumbag DemocRATS gave the stand down. Let them die! How will I look two weeks after saying Al Queda is on the run, Mission Accomplished if we don't cover this baby up before the election?

DemocRATS suck.

<quoted text> And you didn't answer my my questions. Why is it wrong that Clinton got head from Lewinsky but, you accept Thomas Jefferson having an extra marital affair with a slave, even impregnated her, or all your "founding fathers", for that matter? They all were know, or it was common for slave owners to have 2 families, a white one &, a black one. Why the double standard for your "founding fathers?" You don't hear about that in the history books! Yet they're idolized, faces carved in a mountain & all!
Now a far as marriage, to each it's own! If marriage means so much to you, do so, but if you don't see that it's no more than a way to outcast the unmarried, a govt money scheme, & a lawfully binding contract, you're more off than I thought! In most religions God is all seeing, therefore when they tell you the 2 are now 1 in the eyes of God, who do you think they're talking about? A God that is all seeing, & knows when 2 people are knotted at heart hence"God is love,"or a govt that now recognizing the 2 people as a married couple? If it were God, he saw that the 2 people loved eachother before they were married!
Now as for the ghetto bunnies comment. I'll first start with the TANF(Temporary Asst for Needy Family) statistics. TANF is the most common & used form of welfare, & around 80% are single white women. So who's really sleeping around like bunnies, the ghetto or suburban white America?
Secondly on the same front, if you need a piece of paper to stop you from sleeping around, well, you're a whore, & chances are there's issues that exist alot deeper than marriage, a ring, & a certificate of "acceptance."
THIS LIBERAL QUOTES HISTORY to prove he just wants his point of view to be the only one for HIS DEMOCRATIC THEY GONNA PUT YOU BACK IN CHAINS CROWD

MARTHA RADDATZ, SUBSTITUTE HOST: And they got those talking points out there. George Will, is this going to last? Is this going to have a lasting effect as an unacceptable way to do business at the White House?

GEORGE WILL: Lasting. A week ago, Mr. Carney - who's usefulness to this administration is diminishing rapidly - a week ago he said Benghazi was a long time ago as if it was the Punic Wars. This is a very live issue, because we now know three things.

We know that Mr. Hicks, the night of the attack, speaking from Libya, said pretty much what it was, an armed interaction, not a movie review conducted with rocket-propelled grenades and mortars.

Five days later on this program and on four other Sunday morning programs, the idea of an exceptionally boisterous movie review was still the administration's position.

And then, 14 days after the attack, at the UN, it was the same thing.

We started out with three arguments. Was security lax in Benghazi? Demonstrably. Could forces have been there to rescue them? Doubtful. Has the nation been systemically misled? Certainly.

Now, we need a select committee in congress because the State Department's misnamed accountability review board neglected to interview even the secretary of state.

The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

“They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.

Yes. I believe he set the stage for what is happening to our economy today. I didn't always agree with Nixon. The Soviet Union was going to lose... well, if we had one more term of Carter they would have won and what happened to them would have happened to us and we wouldn't even be a country today.
Today, instead of us being the world leader in manufacturing, we are the biggest bum on the planet. We borrow from any country stupid enough to loan us money, or has an ulterior motive.
The only thing growing in our economy is the government. The government is treated as an asset in the calculation of the GDP instead of an expense. Without government growth, the economy doesn't grow.
You, being ignorant of economics, and a dupe promoting a government-based economy wouldn't understand that.

"DETROIT (AP)- Detroit is broke and faces a bleak future given the precarious financial path it's on, according to a new report out by the city's state-appointed emergency manager.

The report was released late Sunday by bankruptcy attorney Kevyn Orr and is his first on Detroit's finances since officially taking the job in March.

Under state law, the report was due within 45 days of Michigan's newest emergency manager law taking effect. Orr's spokesman Bill Nowling had warned last week that the report was an early look at Detroit's fiscal condition and would not be glowing.

The summation is the latest blow to the city which came under state oversight in March when Gov. Rick Snyder selected Orr to handle Detroit's finances. Then, the city estimated its budget deficit to be about $327 million. Detroit also has struggled over the past year with cash flow, relying on bond money held by the state to pay some of its bills.

But Orr reports that Detroit's net cash position was negative $162 million as of April 26 and that the projected budget deficit is expected to reach $386 million in less than two months."

<quoted text>How many names are you posting under this morning dirtbag?
One, coxucker.
By the way, as usual, you didn't respond to the post. Here it is again for your easy reference:

If you’re negotiating with Marxist communists, you’ve already made your first mistake.
The immigration so-called “reform” bill begins with the lie that there are only 11 million illegal aliens here. Fifteen years ago, circa 1998, the official government estimate was 12 million. There are most likely 30 million or more illegal aliens here.
The immigration so-called “reform” bill will put all aliens under the authority of Janet Napolitano, director of Homeland Security.
Janet Napolitano is purchasing 2,400 armored combat vehicles (more tanks than were landed on D-Day), 7,000 machine guns (more machine guns than the Marines had on Iwo Jima), and 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition (enough ammunition for both sides to fight World War I for TWENTY years).
Obviously, Janet Napolitano is preparing for a major war… against someone.
The Democrats are separating the population along race lines, isolating European white and using propaganda to indoctrinate the population to believe they are the real threat to the country, while the truth is muslims are bombing us as if they are on a schedule, the bullet-riddled corpses are being stacked to the rafters in the morgues of every major city in the country every weekend, and every nut committing the highly publicized mass murders is a goddam Democrat: Wayne Williams, DC sniper, Virginia Tech, Columbine, Aurora theater, Newtown, etc., etc., etc.
The top three mass murderers in the history of civilization were Marxist communists. Any enemy of the United States is a friend to Marxist communism. The Democrats are controlled by Marxist communists.
So, just who does Janet Napolitano plan to use to slaughter millions of white Americans?
The immigration so-called “reform” bill will put 30 MILLION illegal aliens, and another 20 MILLION legal aliens, under her authority, to deport as she pleases.
The Marxist communist attack on the United States does not have a simple, single front.
It’s obvious their management of the government is certain to cause the government to collapse.
Obama has ordered that the Wahhabist terrorists from Saudi Arabia be allowed to enter the country without any scrutiny. Only an idiot doesn’t think they are setting up terrorist cells throughout the country. Before Obama is scheduled to leave the White House, we will see a coordinated terrorist attack here in the United States not different than what happened in South Vietnam in 1968.
A massive wave of terrorist attacks throughout the country will occur.
A “state of emergency” is declared.
Janet Napolitano uses the 50 million aliens under her authority to create an army to augment existing assets to enforce the very predictable emergency measures to come.
The goal is to eliminate the constitutional republic and replace it with a totalitarian dictatorship.

Despite protestations by the White House, the Benghazi scandal is just beginning. And the White House has picked a very bad scapegoat: the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA follows RFK’s edict:“Don’t get mad, get even.” And when the CIA gets even, it isn’t pretty.

With the White House putting all blame on the agency, expect push back this week — nuclear push back. Gen. David H. Petraeus, the former director forced to resign after a sex scandal, is a dangerous man to the Obama administration. Mad and intent on getting even, he’s already talking, telling one reporter the talking points were “useless” and that he preferred not to use them at all. The floodgates will open this week, and by the end of business Friday, the scandal will be full blown.

The fact remains that black children are criminalized by racist discipline policies regardless of whether they’re privileged “Cosby kids” or are in foster care or homeless shelters. According to Daniel Losen and Russell Skiba, authors of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Suspended Education” report,“ethnic and racial disproportionately in discipline persists even when poverty and other demographic factors are controlled.iii
National research such as the Southern Poverty Law Center’s study and the Indiana Education Policy Center’s 2000 “The Color of Discipline” report has consistently shown that black students do not, in fact,“offend” at higher rates than their white and Latino counterparts.iv Middle class African American students in higher income schools are also disproportionately suspended. This implies that black students are perceived by adults as more viscerally threatening.“The Color of Discipline” report found that black students were more likely to be referred out of class for lower level offenses such as excessive noise, disrespect, loitering and “threat.”v According to the Southern Poverty Law Center,“race and gender disparities in suspension were due not to differences in administrative disposition but to differences in the rate of initial referral of black and white students.”

“The ‘feminist revolution’ is lily white and over-exposed.”

When it comes to black girls, the widespread perception that they are dangerous, hostile and ineducable is promoted and reinforced by mainstream media portrayals. Historically, black women have never been regarded as anybody’s “fairer sex” because white women have always been the universal standard for femininity, humanity, and moral worth. On contemporary TV and in film, heroic white women abound as “new” models of bold, adventurous, breakthrough femininity. Writing on “women’s” TV portrayals recently in the L.A. Times, Mary McNamara gushed about how the current crop of small screen female protagonists were complexly layered, daring departures from the typical crone, slut and mother roles of the past. According to McNamara,“TV's female leads are breaking ground with their unexpected choices. Thanks to the feminist revolution and TV's increasing ascendancy, women are allowed to make mistakes without paying the ultimate price. It's all quite refreshing.”
